    Advice on creating a PDF or other files useful for researchers and archivists

    dugost

      I have a client who needs a publication designed that will be distributed to academics as a PDF. Nothing fancy but presented in an attractive way. I'll be designing the document in InDesign and provide a final PDF but I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how to ensure that the PDF itself remains useful for researchers and others in an academic setting who want to index/archive/search the file. Or if I should provide supplementary files as well that are better suited for those things and don't necessarily focus on design but on accessible content instead. Like XML files or other formats I could export to that would be preferred by academics.

       

      Any advice is appreciated.
